I stumbled onto a set of used 19x8.5 ET35 VMR V710's locally to replace my damaged stock wheels - I had one bent and one cracked. They had decent 245/35's Michelin Pilot Sports on them. There's definitely too much wheel well gap at stock height and I need to get center caps but I think they look pretty decent!

They look great.

Stock size tire for 19s is 245/40/19, which would help with the wheel gap.

I think a bit more sidewall would definitely help. They came off a 5-series BMW so were sized for that.

Gotcha. Makes sense.

Still good looking wheels, but I'm partial to that type of design. :grin2:

Looks good. I'd go 255/40/19 for a little bit more sidewall.

Car looks much better now with the "new" wheels. Are you keeping any of the old wheels for spares?
